As sovereign nations, American Indian tribes are responsible for the overall health and well-being of their members along with the land and environment of their Tribe.

Tribes are becoming increasingly involved in more public health activities and regulation and deliver public health services through various funding sources, grants and contracts, alone or in collaboration with other Tribes and local county and state health departments.
